BurntnicerI have been working to forex trading before. It is good but I haven't tried the actual trading. I only knew that it is a type of a short term investing in different foreign currencies. Though, I saw my boss quite earning a lot.

Leongls09Hi there ,anyone heard of the broker Vihbs ? Any good ?
RaffertyBForex trading between Christmas and New Years forex are open but with a large portion of bank traders, prop traders and retail speculators alike on holidays, it isn't an easy time to trade. As a result of so many market participants being away from their trading screens, market liquidity thins out and moves become unpredictable.

I am beginner to stock market from malaysia. I would like to open a account to trade on option. It there any suggestion for me to open an online share trading in US market ? what sort of criteria to consider?
magnumbob@ kmchen just start your basic account with about a 1000 or more and begin. if you are a weekly trader then try for 2 % dont trade more then 1 time aweek. also if you have 25000 or more to play with then you can trade more often but it costs alot more. and the return is not as good for as hard as you work. common stocks are the beginner road. get clever and pretty soon you look at dividend etf and penny otc markets.
magnumboball the banks are competitive so its all roughly the same choice. i went with sharebuilder capitol one online orange banking systems
merlinhi.. i'm Malaysian..and interested to trade in Nasdaq market..but trade US market in Malaysia is just like pain in the a**..most broker in Malaysia charge expensive..USD40 per contract!! Is it safe to open with those broker that listed here? how about shares due payments? anybody can advice? thanks in advance =)
PlayerHi Merlin, CIMB investment bank charges are only 25USD/trade for online trading, plus a few USD for stamp charges, etc. I have been with them for many years now. I have also a trust acct with them, it resolves the hassle of sending cheques and collecting of cheques. It goes without saying that when your trade is higher than what you have in yr trust acct, you have to top it up. Which state of Malaysia are your in? You can enquire from CIMB for further details should you have any. Best wishes....
ryan7642So far Maybank investment also the same usd25 + stamp duty too..

Dopamine KrebsAny US online options trading broker that suitable for Malaysian? +1
ikan bilisThinkorswim ( under TDAMERITRADE) min USD 2500, Interactive broker ( MIN US 10K ) cheaper brokerage.
to trade US mkt u need to have knowledge of Tech analysis n some fundamental knowledge. u need to hard work in doing reading n dig stocks ,. if u trade option can be very good tool for leveraging, ( but u need to put in effort to learn at least 6-9 month learning stage. n money to go attend some course in town. or read urself some books, ( michael sincere - book on option is good. OR go library borrow some related books OR go investopedia -go tutorial OR youtube for video learning.
max_cool29@ikan bilis, thanks for your info. The informations you provide is very useful
celyn2012seriously i think is better to trade index.. exposure to individual company is way too much risky
ikan bilisi do not agree of trading ind company risky, risk as what u talking of? indexes is more risky . basically it depends on how far your appetite of risk is. and what sort of strategies u apply. if trade indices u can trade via selling option as premium OR day trade on scalping ( i am doing this everyday. Risk -yes . but if u have discipline control of TP vs Cut loss strictly than there is no problem, as for individual stocks , to me it is much more easier , more straight forward + based on Technical analysis ( Support n resistant, using MA, + oscillators ) + check thoroughly on its fundamental . then u actually minimise a lot of stress. Overall to play indexes unless u are focus attentively n discipline n strong in TA application , otherwise pls stay away. the volatility can sweep u out easily.

ikan bilisjanus, open Thinkorswim Or Interactive broker yourself . then download its platform, trade ur own with only few dollars . per trade. u trade via local broker they just act as nominees /middlemen , of cos u get cut throat price . refer my earlier post answering to someone on this.
Janus Munthanks ikanbili!i was thinking IB,how secure n safe is IB?can be trusted with me money?i am abit afraid i cant remit back my hard earn cash if i want to stop gambling....is there any problem u been thru getting back ur trading money?
Lee Zhl Ruihi, i would like to ask did Thinkorswim provide the trade for CFD?
trader1121Thinkorswim dun have cfd but the product itself. If u wish to trade cfd try find some forex brokers instead, most of them provide cfd.
Lee Zhl Ruihi may i ask in US market if we trade we will be charge per unit or in percentage
Kfchootradebuy min stock per unit. commission charge per trade. buy and sell the same stock considered 2 trades. get decent good US brokerage. commission is very competitive.
Kfchootradeinteractive broker and thinkorswim (not known as TDAmeritrade) both regulated by Commission of Security and backed by government up to 250K per account if brokerage goes bankrupt.
Kfchootradeavoid CFD if possible for newbie. is an leverage instrument. if you really need to trade using CFD, get Direct Market Access (DMA).
Kfchootradethinkorswim normal rate for stock is 9.99. if you account funding is huge, can neg. for better commission pricing.

jlfong1988Apple hasn't crossed below the 200MA for a long time.The fact tt it just did could be signalling that it is in for a bearish run at least for the mid term or it might be entering a consolidation phase.
Fundamentally, we need to look if its recent releases of ipad mini and iphone 5 has significant impact on its bottom line relative to the rest of its competitors especially samsung.
My take will be to hold out and see what happens. Anyways, we're may-july is usually not a good period for stocks. If you're looking to hold the shares for mid to long term then I would suggest a hold. It is uncertain to me if the stock will rise or fall in the short run. Just my two cents worth!! :)
1688i am looking at a higher price like usd555 to short it..today is usd517
